Plum Clafoutis | Vegan, Gluten-free, Soy-free from Recipe RenovatorRipe summer plums fresh off the tree are lightly caramelized with honey and nutmeg, then baked into a traditional French dessert with a custardy batter.

A true clafoutis (pronounced kla-foo-TEE) is made with fresh black cherries, rich custard, and dusted with powdered sugar. They originated in the Limousin region of France. When made with other fruit, it is called a flaugnarde (flo-nyard). I renovated this recipe to be both gluten-free, totally vegan (egg-free), and soy-free. I got inspiration from Karina at Gluten-free Goddess and Kristina at Spabettie.

While I did make this in a cheesecake pan and flipped it over, I would actually recommend using a cast iron skillet and serving it straight from the pan. It’s topped with So Delicious vanilla ice cream in the photo.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp Ener-G egg replacer
  • 12-14 plums small, ripe
  • 1/4 cup sweet sorghum flour (34 g)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (28 g)
  • 3/4 cup soy milk or other non-dairy milk

Instructions
 

  • Whisk 1/2 cup (125 ml) filtered water into the egg replacer in a medium mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Set the oven to 350F/180C/gas mark 4 and put the cast iron skillet in the oven to preheat.
  • Wash the plums. Cut in half and remove the pits using a paring knife. See this post on how to pit plums.
  • Add the flours, milk, syrup, extract, nutmeg, and salt to the bowl and whisk until smooth.
